    JP fans will treat this thread with the contempt it deserves. Dont try to sneak other celebs onto Brad and Angie’s coat tails and expect us JP fans to give them hits. If this is a beyonce thread, place it under her profile and lets see how many of her fans go there to talk about her achievement.

    I will leave now and watch this thread wither on the vine, just like the one with Cloony coat tailing Brad.

    Booyah!

  • VanityInsecurity

    Angie Jolie at #54 & Beyonce at #21.. Only Forbes would take a true humanitarian who spends time & money, opened up a school for refugees in England for rape survivors, had a double mastectomy/hysterectomy which brought awareness to women. I mean opposed to a woman who shakes her ass for a living. Unreal.

  • MizzReyRey .

    wow Beyonce does so much more than shake her ass for a living, if thats the case then all Angelina does is strip for a living, she’s full out naked in multiple movies, I’ve never seen Beyonce naked. Beyonce has also done lots of philanthropy and humanitarian work herself. why are u upset? Bey is a successful BLACK influential positive woman who works hard.. your white feminism is disgusting. ew

  • plez

    No one should take Forbes lists seriously.

  • deusexmacina

    I am way behind you on that lol

  • truekriol

    Ur comment was on point.

  • truekriol

    Beyonce has done alot as well, the only difference is, Beyonce doesn’t broadcast it like Angelina does. If u would do ur research u will find that beyonce took a old hospital building and turn it into a school and shelter for women and children, she build 2 complex building so homeless ppl could have a place to sleep, take a shower and have food to eat every day. She donate money to help in a research for incubator for babies who are born premature, she has recently went to Haiti to assist in clean water, food, shelter and prove medical assistance for the ppl their. And the list goes on and on.

    Girl I want to give you a huge hug, they stay mad at Bey!

  • tyrel

    Are we talking about the same Angelina Jolie who acts like a cancer victim but still smokes?
    I don’t like Beyonce either but she is a better person then Angelina is. Angelina is all PR and hype. Her talent is minimal and she was ousted by all of Hollywood as being a spoiled brat with a huge ego who no one wants to work with. She also is a serial homewrecker. No amount of charity work, false cancer scare will ever change that. Beyonce never stole another woman husband atleast. She doesnt fake cancer scares or preach about like Jolie does for sympathy and awards. Thats all Jolie cares about. Her image and awards.

  • RileyMarie

    Where is that ghetto trash POOR HOE REEK (GARBAGE)CAN jlo?

  • tyrel

    Exactly. And I never knew this about Beyonce. I like it when a celeb keeps their charity work private, and not treat it as a PR tool to save their image like Angelina Jolie did when everyone hated her for destroying Brad Pitts marriage to Jennifer Aniston and also BBT to Laura Dern.

  • tyrel

    Cloony doesn’t cottail Pitt. Its the other way around.

  • tyrel

    His no-talent poseur ‘director’ of a wife must have beaten him up. Wonder what it feels like living with a monster like her.

  • truekriol

    Exactly. And then they get mad when u call them haters.

  • Whamo

    She’s beats him daily because she’s ugly and has no talent.

  • tyrel

    I hate the loons more then any other fan base. Jolie is a homewrecker and a skan..k no mater how much charity work or body parts she removes. It doesn’t change the fact that she hurt another human being, especially a fellow woman like Jennifer Aniston, by having an affair with Jennifer’s then-husband at the time. Jolie also did this with BBT when he was engaged to Laura Dern. She likes men who are unavailable.

  • tyrel

    Only low IQ loons thinks this emaciated, Bruce Jenner look-alike is attractive. She is ugly looking now and has no talent I agree. Can’t remember the last time she made a good movie. She would be a C lister or B lister if not for Pitt and Aniston. Her claim to fame is having an affair with one half of the Golden Couple. Thats all. No for her acting or filmography or her pathetic new found calling as a ‘director’ but as the mistress/ side chick in a relationship from 10 years ago.

  • Sirach

    Spot On!

  • tyrel

    Loons are racists. Just check out all the nasty comments about George Clooney’s wife Amal and see what they say about her. They can’t stand any other women being bigger or having the spotlight other then Jolie, especially a colored woman.

  • Whamo

    Bruce Jenner look alike..lol!!
    Yes indeed, without the Aniston angle she’d never be talked about. The real power couple was with his true love Jennifer for sure. Can you imagine the blockbuster a Jen and Brad movie would produce!? Buy My Pee is going to be a colossal craptacular BO disaster!

    I love how Sony calls Heroina out as the no talent hack she truly is. Hollywood is laughing out loud at her, no wonder she’s quitting acting. Bwahhaahah!

    Why is TICKY not in the list I thought her 7 fans from DUMBlisted said TICKY is more famous and powerful than Angelina Jolie ..oh yeah in their DELUSIONAL MIND bwahahhahahhahahhahahh!!!

    ALL LIES !! I believe more in this :

    After singer Harry Belafonte told The Hollywood Reporter that Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z “have turned their back on social responsibility,” the music moguls are not pleased.

    Beyoncé’s camp immediately responded by sending an email to the Wall Street Journal with “an abbreviated list of the unselfish work Beyoncé has done and continues to do.”

    According to the email, Beyoncé’s charitable acts include:

    1. Co-founding The Survivor Foundation “a multi-purpose community outreach facility in downtown Houston.”

    2. Donating “100K in 2008 to the Gulf Coast Ike Relief Fund to aid Texas victims of Hurricane Ike.”

    3. Performing in “MTV’s Hope For Haiti Now! Benefit in addition to making a generous monetary donation.”

    But this isn’t the first time Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s charitable giving has been under scrutiny.

    In 2010, Jay-Z only reportedly donated $6,431 of his $63 million earnings to his own Shawn Carter Scholarship Fund, and out of the $87 million Beyoncé earned in 2010, zilch was given to her husband’s foundation.

    And Belafonte isn’t buying it, either.

    When asked if he is ‘happy with the image of members of minorities in Hollywood today” in his recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Belafonte replied “Not at all” and continued:

    “And I think one of the great abuses
    of this modern time is that we should have had such high-profile artists, powerful celebrities. But they have turned their back on social
    responsibility. ”

    That goes for Jay-Z and Beyoncé, for example. Give me Bruce Springsteen, and now you’re talking. I really think he is black.

    ===============
    WOW JAY-Z worth 63 million and donated only 6, 341 in his own Charity foundation and Beyonce worth 87 mil and donated NOTHING!! Right she’s a real humanitarian!!

  • truekriol

    That essay that u wrote is all lies. So every charity organizations is lying? Stupid ppl believe stupid stuff.

  • http://www.justjared.com/ Jen the Hag

    Excuse me i did not wrote it.. go read the link .. You’re the stupid one not me!! and i should believe what you post it the TRUTH?? DELUSIONAL that’s YOU!!

  • truekriol

    Beyonce and Jayz has nothing to prove to u or Harry Belafonte, they have done enough, it’s not their job to solve the worlds problems. At the end of the day they are only millionaires and can only do so much. Why don’t u attack the billionaires, like the owner of apple? U give him ur money everytime u buy his products.

  • truekriol

    And by the way u’re still an idiot because that article doesn’t prove anything. What was the point of that article?

  • http://www.justjared.com/ Jen the Hag

    and Angelina Jolie has nothing to prove to you too so don’t question her humanitarian work either !!! I prove my point .. end of discussion .. BABOOSH!!

  • http://www.justjared.com/ Jen the Hag

    and your post does not prove anything either about JAy-z and Beyonce either!! Are you an idiot or lacking reading comprehension that article questions your idols CHARITABLE ACT i mean non – charitable act!! I’m done talking to an IDIOT Like YOU!! GOODBYE IDIOT TROLL!!

  • truekriol

    where in my comments did i say that Angelina had to prove anything to me? And i never question her humanitarian work. All i did was point out to that commenter that Beyonce has done enough charitable work as well.

  • truekriol

    That article didn’t question anything u idiot, all it did was state Harry Belafonte opinion. And it was his wrong opinion. U, him and all the naysayers need to do your research, instead of talking out of ur azz.

  • CLINIQUA

    Manny has zero power.

  • CLINIQUA

    Before you start maligning Angelina over a dumb post by someone deliberately trying to cause strife, I would remind you of a few important things: 1) Beyonce is on record as admiring Angelina her damn self. I really don’t think it wise for you to start a war with Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt or Plan B, just because you’re being baited into it by a troll pretending to be a Jolie fan upset over Bey being on the list. 2) Quoting a fat sloth of a b*tchy producer Scott rudin as he’s ranting over not getting his way, is only proof positive of the power Jolie has…no one else makes a grimy known beast of a fart like Rudin shake in his shoes and get put on hold. Oh and FYI, that well known piece of shite is a maggot of a man, even his own boyfriends despise him – he represents ‘ALL of hollywood,’ about as much as Mel Gibson does.Hahaha. Need I remind you, as he’s ranting he’s scheming on how to get Jolie in no less than two of his projects, fool. ‘Minimally,’ my azz. Get a clue. 3) Angelina Jolie has won and been nominated for every major acting achievement award (including TWO OSCARS) that exists and gets paid 20 mil plus back end..her last film which she alone headlined, grossed almost 800 mil worldwide. Do you know how insane you sound saying THE top actress in Hollywood can’t get work? Even J-Lawrence is on record as saying she gets Angelina’s cast offs. Everyone knows Jolie gets it first then everyone else can have a look (see Gravity, Silver Linings, etc.) So please have a fcking seat bish. H’wood doesn’t pay people 30 mil and give them first look and green lights for their health. You sound like a STUPID twaht just mad becausr youre ugly. You do Bey a disservice in ways you can’t calculate. 4) Despite ugly British hags versions of Ann Coulter like Katie Hopkins, who barely make a living squawking hate on daytime Brit TV, who have penchants for attacking beautiful girls and trying to spread lies about them (the lie that Jolie is a regular or even part time smoker, she doesn’t and isn’t.) no one else believes it. 5) its already categorically and quantitatively been determined by the worldwide medical community that Angelina Jolie sharing her BRCA1 screening/test results, describing the process and lack of availability/affordability (and that needing to change – which it has, the cost has decreased), and the decisions she made to save her own life and not die of the genetic cancers that wiped out her maternal line, she is providing a powerful proactive example for women in such circumstancs everywhere – with women and physicians worldwide crediting her with saving/extending lives. 6) Aside from a grainy balcony papz shot taken with a zoom lens from a mile away of an agitated Jolie maybe sharing a drag off her husband’s CIG/joint/elec CIG almost a year ago…u have no other info or evidence pointing to her being a regular or even semi regular smoker in the last decade….no matter how much ugly daytime TV talker cows across the pond like katie hopkins wish it were true. Lastly 7) The main holdover and why reject homelies everywhere go in on Jolie with their lies: JEALOUSY No. Jolie did not steal Brad Pitt or have an affair with him. You dontvhave to believe him, or her or even Brad’s boring lame of an ex. who have all said it didn’t happen. But when you insist on negating even what the loser dumped ex says, its clear you have a over investment issues. Get a life. How are you going to be more indignant over something that never happened than the women who got left who says it did not. As for the other woman who Jolie’s haters like to vomit up; no laura dern’s then boyfriend Billy Bob did not xgeat with Jolie either. Thornton dumped his girlfriend, and then started seeing Angelina. If you want to know what a true adulterer or cheater looks like, ask laura, who hooked up with MARRIED musician Ben Harper who was expecting his 3rd child with his WIFE, and got knocked up by him, hence why ben’s wife and laura have kids the same age. Eeeew and YUCK.

    There. That said. I’m sure the Jolie Pitt fandom at large doesn’t take your reckless stupid hateful lying spew as representative of Beyonce and her fans.

    Jolie has been rocking these lists for a decade plus… She’s not going anywhere. No true fan of Angelina begrudges Beyonce or swift or whoever else made this list or that list, their spot…because Angelina Jolie ain’t about no dam dumb list, she walks the walk. Which is why smart girls like Bey admire her. So I suggest you stfu and stfd.

  • CLINIQUA

    Bish eff off. Both you and ugly maniston. Even she said Brad Pitt didn’t cheat on her fool, so how are u more indignant over her getting dumped than she is? Brad was leaving that lame TV shittcom hacktress regardless of him choosing to chase after Angelina after he split with Rachel or not.

    As for laura dern she wasn’t even married to Thornton, he was her boyfriend, and both he and Bruce dern, her father, say they were split up when Thornton started seeing Angelina.

    Laura Dern slept a with married expectant father musician Ben Harper (his then wife was pregnant at the time) then Dern went and got herself knocked up at the same time as his wife (Ewwww!!! SKANK!!!), now THAT is the low down dirty wh+re you want to believe over Angelina.

    So shut up you homely skank you’re just mad and jealous cuz you’re fug.

  • CLINIQUA

    While you are a troll deliberately trying to cause strife between Bey and Angelina fans just because you’re still mad a decade later that homely Jen got dumped. Don’t fall for this loser and or the fake Angie fan(s) maligning Bey.

    Angelina fans have no problem with Beyonce and indeed like her (I’m a Bey fan myself from way back) and Beyonce loves her some Angie.

    So these losers kicking up dust are just homely fans of homely Jen still mad a decade later as she nears 50 yrs old and has to watch her betters get voted onto lists like this one. I don’t put it past the Maniston fans posing like Angie fans to slur Beyonce. Its really aniston and her ugly nasty pal Chelsea handler fans who are disrespectful to Bey and her fans, not to mention racists.They’ve even made racist remarks about Angie’s children.

  • Leonard Maina

    All Angelina does is steal husbands for a living.

  • VanityInsecurity

    oh wow so original.. came up with that all by yourself?

  • VanityInsecurity

    name them with proof.. waiting.

  • VanityInsecurity

    wow I am a colored woman you moron. try again. difference is I don’t judge people or like people by the color of their skin ..

  • VanityInsecurity

    wtf does smoking have to do with her accomplishments? You make no damn sense.

  • VanityInsecurity

    No she hasn’t, not in comparison to Angelina.

  • truekriol

    How do u know that?
